Would recommend if travelling alone as I often do. Just grab a stool at the bar. Staff were very good and portion sizes were just right for two.

Went here for dinner and sat at the bar. The bar is a large U shape and has a nice commanding presence in the restaurant. This may be why the place is so loud (not deafening but up there). I ordered 5 small plate items and was not disappointed with any of the food. The food was always hot, tasty... More

An excellent post theater dinner: good service, excellent food, good wine (although servers should know more about Iberian wines), and an enjoyable experience. However, the noise level was too high, and we were seated in a drafty area - not fun when it is really cold outside. Nevertheless, we will return when in the area.

Very nice bustling place. Other reviewers are correct the noise level is pretty high but is made up for by the excellent food and service. Octopus tapas were Exceptional.

You don't want to have a romantic night out here, though it is well decorated and the tapas are fantastic. You cannot hear a word from your date/spouse/friend. But it had best carrot/ ginger soup that we have ever eaten. Beef empanadas, great;, also Jamon/cheese croquettes. Salad fine. Sangria really good. But we moved 3 times before settiling in. We...

Great place with attentive staff. I'm not familiar with most of the Spanish foods but everything I've tried is good. Lots and lots of good vino here. Cool vibe too.

We came to Barcelona for my birthday brunch and the food and service were great. The pancakes with berries and scrambled eggs were made to perfection. The chorizo had so much flavor that we had to order a second serving. Their deserts are good as well. Very nice location. I would recommend coming here for brunch on a nice day!

Tapas restaurant with an attentive staff and excellent wine list. Can be done easily on a budget (just order fewer, cheaper tapas and only one glass of wine, have dined for less than $20/head), or you could also easily blow well over $100/head.

Love the food. My first visit was at the Atlanta location. The white sangria is good and I love the patatas bravas. The short rib was tender.

Barcelona offers a great take on Spanish tapas in downtown Stamford. The food is good and the atmosphere is lively. It is a great place for a date, a meeting with friends or a family meal with teens. My favorites include the cold cuts, the cheese and the gambas.
